Bad News: This weekend I ran a total of about 6 miles so I don't have much to talk about in that area. My lack of running is mainly due to the fact that I want to really give my body a break, but I also prefer cuddling to running and I had the opportunity to do so this weekend so....heck yeah!
Good news is that I have cool travel pics from Seattle AND I think this week, I might actually run a track workout. Imagine....=).
Here's the deal with Seattle: I've been going up there on a regular basis for the last 9 months or so bc the BF lives up there. And until we invent the teleporter or cloning machine (let me know if you have one I can borrow), the regular visiting and plane flights are the best way I know how to keep up a romantic relationship.
I know what you're thinking about Seattle....rain and 40 degree weather, right? Well....kinda....
I have found that Seattle is the picture of misery from about November to early March. Mid 40s, rain, and about 2 hours that are not pitch black. But here's Seattle's bipolar secret. From about May to August, it's freaking GLOORRIOUSSSS!
Seriously. This weekend, it was so sunny and full of spring flowers, I could have sworn I heard angels singing and kittens purring all weekend.
We started out with brunch at Roxy's in Fremont. Fremont is a neighborhood close to downtown Seattle that is famous for the Fremont Troll and has plenty of restaurants and bars to hang out in. Roxy's is a delicious New York type deli that we go to bc it's easy to walk to and has food like this:
I forget what this was actually called on the menu, but essentially, it's a baklava pancake. Filo, Walnuts, Pistachios, Honey....really really good. Anthony ordered them, but of course everything he orders is fair game, so I made short work of them =).
We then went Seattle wine tasting. While the ridiculously cold / rainy weather of western Washington isn't exactly conducive to grape growing apparently the weather of Eastern Washington is. So they set up places just outside Seattle so that we can booze without driving across the state!
|Don't we look classy?|
|Girly Girl Wines!|
I pretty much let Anthony take the lead, since I really don't know the difference between a box of Franzia and something uhhh....better....
At one of the wineries, there was some club called the "girly girl" to encourage women to come with their girlfriends. Since I like all things pink and targeted at women, I was super excited about by this and wished I had Seattle girlfriends to join with!
The next day we went to the Fremont farmers market and saw this...
WHERE DO I SIGN UP??????
I also saw some really cute plant Brontosauruses:
So that's the story of the weekend, Morning Glories!
And here's the Q and A portion where I try to elicit comments and make friends!
Are any of you in Long Distance Relationships too (or ever were in one)?
(if so comment with "heeellll yaaaaa!").
Can you tell the difference between good and bad wine? (I sure can't)
Also, if you had any amazing workouts or races, LET ME KNOW - I want to hear about it =).
